Microsoft pays to watch YouTube
 ~ YouTube played by the Xbox One.
 YouTube viewers may need to closely read the credits of videos starring the Xbox One from Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT).

Fast forward to Microsoft's partner-in-marketing Machinima, reputed originator of emails defining Xbox promotion video terms. In Microsoft's Xbox movies, a handsome, rugged, "don't mention Microsoft" clause always acts the leading role. Predictable and formulaic, these movies might be block-busters, but critical bloggers in the audience believe the US Federal Trade Commission may have to step in to rewrite scripts.
